  • The best and the biggest Orthodox Temple in Europe. Beautiful on the outside, and inside. But it is not yet over, although we are making progress. Beautiful

  • The place is beautiful but a lot of works going on inside. It was nice to see it from outside though.  more »
  • Very impressive structure, into a short tour to see the beauty and power. This ancient Church. It is an impressive building, but really not more than that, they make pretty fast. Recommends Cirencester-400 meters behind her local market has very nice and small streets with many shops and it was nice to visit.

  • This temple is an orthodox Christian church of great proportions that can be seen from many different points of the city. It is very bright and beautiful on the outside but unfortunately it appears to be a never-ending story when it comes to its finishing. It is bare and undone inside with the exception of the subterranean crypt that is thoroughly depicted and decorated with images of Serbian national history and religious history. The outside plateau is deteriorated and too green for the purpose, should be paved enough to gather the fidels to pray in mass on important occasions. One entry to the temple looks like a construction site whilst roughly half of the paving slabs are broken and wiggling when you step on. It should be amazing when done but that is a big matter of time.
  • A must-see attraction in Belgrade. Temple of Sava is currently under renovation inside as of April 2018. But the underground section is immaculate.
  • Supposed to be a very beautiful Orthodox Christian Church, but it is not complete yet. Apparently has been a long time since it started but not finished yet. It is also located in a nice and pieceful environment.
  • Great place to visit. Beautiful park, library nearby, parking available, pay zone. Inside you can see lovely paintings. Not finished yet.
  • Saint Sava temple is the biggest one in Southeast Europe, and.the biggest Serbian Orthodox temple in the world. The highest point of the temple's roof is above 70meters from ground. It started to be built in early 20th century and still is not finished. It was destroyed partially in World War II. This is one of the most beautiful temple in the world. Also, one of the most acoustic one, so the concerts of classic music and chorus music held there sounds amazing, almost like beyond reality. This is something you must visit when you are visiting Europe, especially Begrade and Serbia
